Dog behaviourist Cesar Millan is combating the global issue of canine abandonment and giving “unadoptable” dogs a second chance at life in his new Nat Geo WILD series Cesar Millan’s Leader of the Pack. The series premieres on April 17, 2013 at 10 p.m. HK/SG.

Following the success of his long-running series Dog Whisperer, Millan’s new show takes him to the beautiful country of Spain, where each week he transfers extreme canine cases to his new Dog Psychology Centre in Miraflores, just outside of Madrid. In each episode, three candidates from either the UK, Italy or the Netherlands compete for the chance to adopt one special pup, with their dog skills put to the test in a series of special Cesar Millan canine challenges. Meanwhile, Millan employs his “exercise, discipline and affection” method to overcome hurdles with dogs that are particularly skittish or aggressive to painstakingly rehabilitate each one and prepare them for adoption.
